    Just Another Day in Monetezation

    @ Splay - Yup the I'm ok with it so everyone should be too. That it's just another inducement to get players to make another pull if they haven't been so lucky, beyond her. Listing what she may have got out of the these extras just being the poster girl for the envious numpties who will dump MC on them. As for ILIs, MoL distances himself from every failing part of the game but asks for opinions from whoever is left posting on the forums now, hardly the brain trust given the zealous moderation of Heaton and Co. Deception is too ingrained at SSG. Mac
  2. Patch Notes for the 12 dec 25.1 detail a change to the way some "bows" lay when not wielded. Kind of looks like the /bugs are being dealt with in complete isolation. These are ranged weapons with all bow artwork but have the weapon type of crossbow instead. So either the patch notes are trying to hide the screw up or they are reworking the art to flip them 90 degrees and edge them closer when all that was needed was to change the weapon type to Bow and the standard artwork would have them sit correctly. Such a waste of resources if they have done this and have to change it all back when the final 2 minute change is implemented. Comms at SSG must be worse that with us.

    I had dream about LOTRO

    Just took a look at the OF and MoL is replying to concerns on his BBoM questline. He even recognises that players with vastly different strengths and abilities are coming to it and he set it to be achieved by anyone, yet still some couldn't cope with the simplest of mechanics. If you market the game with inept un-monitored twitch moderators, have a history on the forums of some "players" struggling with every aspect of gameplay then you'll get players totally unsuited to a MMORPG, the consequence of indiscriminately casting the net wide. Trawl for morons and you get morons and then you have to cater to the morons who pay the wages. How can SSG function when any department has every other undermining their efforts? Mac

    I had dream about LOTRO

    With the deceptions that SSG perpetrate on it's customers so willingly you'd have to wonder how much rubs off on inter office communications. MoL has only just left his bubble briefly to get some ILI suggestions, who else can raise their head above the parapet? No one with any shred of rep left. We have art and systems rather see players and the CM live stream these bowcrossbow abominations than admit fault. The craft dev with years of abuse on crafting behind her ineptly continues on without issue. The "hype" that has always disregarded consequences is too ingrained. Anyone coming in to "fix" it just wouldn't stand a chance in hell. We even have a CM aggrieved that his "no ETA" and zero comment on the transfers re-coding details should bring condemnation when he fails to answer multiple threads every day and when he or marketing do they only show how ignorant of the game they are. Each little bit they learn just exposes more that they fail to grasp. Jokes the both of them but too stupid to realise how obvious their failures are. The CM's denial of "shareholders": whilst true, just confirms the Daybreak "pact with the devil" they are under, moron. It's fortunate they have enough morons still paying for this shit with goldfish memories that forget how they were shafted every time before. Mac

    SSG hates LotRO PvMP and its PvPers.

    Knowledge is power. SSG seem devoid of any game knowledge so literally any cogent post could be seen as a troll post and the dumbest of people in some undeserved position of authority will fight with the only tool they have. CM has no passion for the game so doesn't understand the passions of it's players. He has no sense of community because he's not one of us. He's just an ignorant bully, likely a victim in youth, getting off on the arse lickers that maintain the semblance of ego that remains after spinning SSG deceptions for years. Mac

    Black Friday Sale (and New Item)

    If people stopped just throwing their money away on the crap offered we'd get a better game but they just can't see it. The more they pay the worse it gets. Their claims of "supporting SSG" is supporting them in extracting every last dime out of these numpties. Mac

    Black Friday Sale (and New Item)

    It will be a "due to player feedback" they will remain open a while longer... Christmas bonuses not yet covered. Nothing about how the store was broken and didn't deliver so much during the sale. There is a patch imminent (no restarts today), I wonder if it's to close out any remaining advantage players might be having or start addressing beta bugs finally. Mac

    Black Friday Sale (and New Item)

    Dec 3rd and the ILI fix up is still available. The Points Bonus with task bag is also still available and the splash screen "Now - Dec 2nd" still up. They did manage to shut off the bonus VXP for players on time though. Mac

    Black Friday Sale (and New Item)

    You have to laugh. Reports of the store still not delivering and it's the last day of the sale. Talk about panic buying.

    Pounding spikes

    She also demonstrates her complete lack of ability to play the game or take on board any advise to help her improve her lot over the many years of posting. She is "published" you know, self published... Mac

    Black Friday Sale (and New Item)

    Yup for cheats and hopeless players, neither of which I want to play a game with thank you. Those who gladly spend £150 will gladly spend £250 the next "SALE", will they baulk at £350? SSG will just invent another Sale with short time availability for what ever fix they can sell for whatever they have broken in the game. The scripted ILI's progress on Stat and Legacies could have been set at any level that SSG wished. They chose to near max the stat and put zero on the legacies, then sell those peeps a fix me in the store for $50 X2 a couple of week later once the realisation had sunk in. They even threw in the bait of a near max ILI in beta for those that didn't blindly fork up on day one... Predation.

    Black Friday Sale (and New Item)

    Looks like the $$G plan is working, Store can't handle the Sales Rush and isn't fulfilling orders... One ex O Streamer is complaining about their £149 point purchase not delivering. With people happy to throw cash at them it can only get worse. How many characters does 37500 LP fix? I'd have to laugh if the sale is over before the store delivers the points and they can't buy the LI Fix in time. Does it end Monday?

    Black Friday Sale (and New Item)

    The abjectly self-deluded as displayed by DF last night will remain beyond hope. ILI's less progression than these bait and switch pre-mads are coming out, no crystals though. Mostly with the relics that came with her Mordor super fan pack, SSG wouldn't give fans crappy relics would they? They did! 861 dps on the 2 hander, a loot box mace in the bag 1352 dps has her confused. Gear all lootbox or quest, can't even grasp that the gear she is equipping from the loot box is just to provide p2w Embers. Ballie's subliminal messages to her over the last couple of months has made her aware of her need to work on LIs (admits to being an ILI convert, no concern she has advocated the reverse to followers for years, leading them into the same hole/grave). But she's clueless on how she's supposed to do that. One mob on level she can kill, two is a real struggle. She tried to copy Gravity's mini "rotations" but is still clueless how he could nuke the map while she struggles with one mob. She partakes in zero of the Lotro grind. While others put months and months into the grinds she gives up after 5 minutes. With Ballie gone from the forums she stands no chance, direct help and advise meets the usual block. She has a dozen characters in this position. She is too thick to realise she is the whale, but literally too dumb to actually manage to swallow the fucking hook properly. I can understand why SSG has given up any pretence of subtlety if their marks are so incapable. Mac

    Black Friday Sale (and New Item)

    I've just noticed that the development cycle thread has been responded to by Cordovan. Months ago I'd posted that is bore no resemblance to how to was now with everything about the store and lootboxes. All Cordoban managed was:- /necro Yup, confirming that this is far from the current methodology. Failed to unsticky it though, the moron.

    Black Friday Sale (and New Item)

    It looks like these task bags are equally useless. All the vendor trash that doesn't have a task associated with them get swallowed up in them too and you have to manually extract the items to hand in. Money for tattered old rope. SSG laughing all the way to the bank.

    Black Friday Sale (and New Item)

    I have a f2p char in the craft hall I just login to and pass mats over to my newly guilded wood worker. Simples. As a means to getting these new carry fuck-alls why would you spend the cash on anything but the minimum value one for the type you are after? The muppets weighing up the need for points to fix their hopeless characters or the extra slots to put their worthless crap in, might bring on a stroke. It's all fucked up, pure extortion. Everywhere it's about creating an issue to sell you the fix. Poking you in the eye and selling you eye drops that do fuck-all anyway. The official streamer struggle at the best of times to keep on message this step might be beyond all but a few really pathologically deluded "victims". Are they going to spend $100 a month for the pennies returned for streaming? They very well may be just that fucked up. It wouldn't surprise me if RedPanda has gotten systems to rig up a Ka-Ching with every store purchase. The Pavlov's dog theory at work, forgetting the dead game in the Schrodinger's box he refuses to looked inside. If only he'd just buy a Black Steel Key to open it. I'm not totally against selling this sort of thing in the market it's just that they have to fuck up the game every time to add some incentive. With the morons they have brought into the game they can't be subtle for them to understand, it all has in your face obvious for them to realise, the store can fix everything. Mac

    Streamer "Awesomeness"

    With no one fun to follow on the OF, time for a DF laugh. Two day old stream:- Valared Guard seeking mats for a first age belt. Well the ore and shards. She has zero resources and moans she has these things on Landy. I have seen that wallet and it's slim pickings there too. Seems she took more welfare payments than she should and they want some back. Setup for another fund ME ME ME? The exploiting of shared storage and wardrobe limits with transfers more an "exploit" NOT what those bad people do when they exploit. She did show us the massive carry-all bags that DDO has and the ability to craft from their crafter bag. 120 hunter never imbued the bow, the threat down legacy choice... like she could ever pull aggro of someone else? Not 120 valared, maybe a 105, as stats are PM 70k Crit 82k Rep panel shows a hell of a lot of Neutrals. It's looks like she has only one character who has actually reached 120 without some kind of valar a champ with woeful ILI and better off using off-hands (and didn't even use in the last stream I watched, choosing to use the LI with less than half the dps stat). Not sure she will have the brains to figure out to buy this fix my IL pack but she seems oblivious to her financial situation. She still has no idea how weak all her character are. Every char she has at 120 will need two of them. Here we go, she's showing us the Landy shared storage... Lots of crap but not much. 173 gold on the main, again all neutral reps with the odd acquaintance. And Emerald shards, none there either. The AH on landy has them at 50g for two, my server it's 120g for one, and she doesn't have the cash. The 24 Seals would indicate she's never found a use for the Marks and Meds before, unexpectedly healthy. So two hours of streaming, got some ore and some scholar mats and didn't even get around to making the ingots. I've seen some of her crafter characters, she often will only craft half way in every tier so never gets to open the crit up. All tiers half arsed. No, not pay to win. Very much pay to loose. No amount of money can fix this.

    75% off the Ironfold tier. Literally they killed that tier by having everything tied to a the anvil raid drop that no one is running atm. Well damaged goods. The great crafting kill off, not revamp! Mac

    Black Friday Sale (and New Item)

    Ballie has received a permanent ban for trolling. I didn't get it archived sadly. Just Ballie being Ballie. "Shambolic way to run (down) a game" A question about LinkedIn crashing might have tipped the balance, post has been removed. On a happier note they might be moving to a new OF next years and we can all sign up with multiple registrations not linked to game accounts.

    Just Another Day in Monetezation

    I kind a want to do a video of how to play a yellow champ on landscape to give him some pointers but he ain't paying me... He has copied the standard of zero cure and morale pots on his bar. With no clue about crafting professions, no horns on a 3m CD and a 10s stun. Mashing keys the standard Heaton inspired playstyle continues. Will he put Battle frenzy in there at slot 1 or 4? A fail if not on 1 to 6. My theory is that whatever class some people choose they just move a few skills around on the bar and play every class the exact same way. Morons. Your can guess which 3 players I have in mind. Mac

    Just Another Day in Monetezation

    Please God DF wont send him a screenshot of her skills UI and "rotation" on her champ like she did with the minstrel. Glossary: Min/Max: What DF can Achieve/Everyone else's potential Theory Craft: Reading what your skills do. Rotation: Placing red skills on a bar to mash, placing green skills on the bar to use when overwhelmed. He must have realised, with Ballie's mastery of topics on the forums, how little DF knows compared to how much she professes to know. The revamped valar puts him in the well geared/spec category and the ex co-host wouldn't stand up to any comparison with fuck all resources to use against his unlimited LP. Come on we'd all move state to distance ourselves from her. He's buying into a different part of the game to avoid her Mac

    Just Another Day in Monetezation

    I'm beginning to feel that SSG must think that Ballie is their only reliable source for what's actually going on in game atm. Most of us were banned for less! And doing Cord's job to counter misconceptions all over the forums. Nice one was the inference that devs could be deceived by manipulative players... it might sink in one day...

    Just Another Day in Monetezation

    They were on devs interview thing, maybe an anniversary one, and all laughed. But why fix anything when is keeps many out of the MT Dailies and the A1 route for in-game SoEs.

    Legendary Servers = Failed Experiment?

    https://www.lotro.com/forums/showthread.php?676858-Let-s-talk-about-Virtues&p=7974944#post7974944 Ballie before the chop: "Accelerator Pricing 1,000 LP for 10,000 of Virtue Accelerator. A valar delivers 650,000 vxp - like for like this much acceleration would cost 65,000 LP a Valar 120 a pittance at 6,695 LP What's the break down? valar 120 $70 ticket item, equivalent accelerator $700? And I get a slapped wrist today for suggesting this very thing and that players will fall for it, shame on you Cordovan. Just another reason why this valar package is such a give away game breaker compared to all the other means provided by the store."
